It's My Party

 Dress: Old Navy, $8 // Blazer: Vintage Levi's, thrifted, $3 // Boots: Thrifted, $4 // Belt: Thrifted, $1 // Necklace: F21, $9

My birthday's not till Sunday, but because of the way scheduling worked out, my celebrations are all spread out. It's like having a long birthday weekend instead of just a day. Fun! Last night I had a low-key party with my family, and this is what I wore. I think I got the dress + hoodie + blazer inspiration from JCrew. I swear I didn't spill beer down my dress (though I wouldn't put it past me). This dress is slightly shiny, so shadows look like stains. Happy Friday, everyone!

Happy Birthday! I have no idea what I'll wear to your party. I'm thinking of wearing every single article of clothing I own, layer upon layer, starting with my swim suit. How 'bout that?

I'm a true believer that your birthday isn't just a day, it's a week and in some cases it's the entire month. Very cute outfit and early happy birthday!

To make your event memorable, you need great planning, great favors, great food and ghoulish ambiance.The atmosphere you create will in turn, give your guests a great time. You don’t have to be a kid to have a great PArty. Parties now inspire great costumes. The yearly Costume Party truly inspires adults to bring out their imaginations. This time of year gives adults permission to be weird,scary, sexy and outrageous without being scrutinized as a nut case.When party planning, you want to have a healthy mix of people that will be able to enjoy each others company without starting drama. Therefore think your guest list out thoroughly. Also consider the type of birthday party supplies to used .
